The filmmakers who defy convention and validate the legitimacy of the auteur theory are revealed in probing, wide-ranging and provocative interviews that first appeared in Playboy magazine. From foreign masters of direction and style Ingmar Bergman and Federico Fellini to champions of independent film Spike Lee and The Coen Brothers to the godfathers of the gangster movie Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese, the visionaries to constantly push the boundaries of their medium and portray humanity through subversive lenses reflect the very best of the 50 years of the Playboy Interview.
